  • GREECE'S BID LEADER, ANGELOPOULOS, WON'T HEAD 2004 GAMES

              Gianna Angelopoulos, who last month became the first
         woman to lead a city's successful bid to host the Olympics
         when Athens was awarded the 2004 Games, said that she "has
         no intentions" of becoming CEO of the Athens Organizing
         Committee, according to Philip Hersh of the CHICAGO TRIBUNE. 
         Angelopoulos: "I did my job (as bid committee chief), and I
         believe I did it perfectly.  I don't want anything in
         return.  All I want is to help."  Under its deal with the
         IOC, Athens has seven months to put an organizing committee
         "in place" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 9/26).
